TennisSection previews the 2021 French Open as Elina Svitolina (5) meets Oceane Babel (WC) in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 1st 2021.
Will the young wildcard, Oceane Babel, get the biggest win of her career under her belt as she makes her main tour debut in one of the biggest tournaments at Roland Garros 2021? Will Elina Svitolian come out here ready to dominate and get her game at its best in order to make it to the late stages here at the 2021 French Open? This is going to be an interesting match between a debutant and an experienced player. Who will come out on top?
Oceane Babel is so unknown on the WTA Tour, that even her profile has no picture, height, or age. Oceane Babel is ranked 1047th in the world and she is making her debut here at Roland Garros, only ever having competed on the main tour in Double’s matches. Oceane Babel will be very happy to make her debut in a Grand Slam, and I am sure the French crowd will be cheering her on as they love their French players in Paris. However, Oceane Babel will have to cause one of the biggest upsets possible for anyone on the Women’s tour in her first match! Elina Svitolina is no easy opponent, and in your first ever match, I am sure Babel will have to find some magic on the court.
Elina Svitolina will want to make some important moves for her 2021 season here at the 2021 French Open, hoping to make the second week, and perhaps even go all the way if she can. Elina Svitolian is always tough to beat, but unfortunately this year, her strong performances have only come here and there. Having won 19 matches this year, and losing 9 along the way, Elina Svitolina is still titleless this season, and we all know that she is deserving of a Grand Slam title, but she just needs to find the consistency. Elina Svitolina is not a clay-court expert, but I am sure she will be happy with her first round opponent here at Roland Garros 2021 in Oceane Babel.
Elina Svitolina and Oceane Babel have never met before, with this being their first meeting. Unfortunately for the French crowd and the young Frenchwoman, I see no way that she is going to get anything going against someone as tough and as experienced as Elina Svitolina. Elina is a Top 10 player and she has won some massive tournaments in her career, and I am sure she will come out here at the 2021 French Open ready to give it her best right from the start, and she will not let herself waste time on court if she does not need to.
